Macclesfield boss Gary Simpson could be boosted by the return of Carl Tremarco and Colin Daniel for the home clash with Darlington.

Left-back Tremarco has been nursing a groin injury and attacking midfielder Daniel has been troubled by a hamstring problem.

Both players look set to be passed fit but defender Paul Morgan is doubtful with an ankle strain.

Midfielder Ross Draper will also miss out with an ankle problem and Ricky Sappleton looks like he will sit out the rest of the season with a knee complaint.

Midfielder Hamza Bencherif is set to to miss the remainder of the campaign as he recovers from a broken ankle.

Simpson is already planning for next season and said: "This is a properly-run club with people in charge who care about it."

Darlington defender Paul Arnison will return to the squad.

Arnison, sidelined with a hamstring injury, could be included in the starting line-up with manager Simon Davey expected to make further changes following his side's latest defeat in midweek against Notts County.

Davey could be further boosted by the return to fitness of defender Ian Miller, who has missed the last three games due to a hernia problem, while striker Chris Moore has shaken off a stomach strain and hopes to feature in the Quakers' last away match.

But in-form striker Tadgh Purcell (ankle) is still doubtful and Darlington are already without Curtis Main (ankle ligaments) and Gareth Waite (knee), who were recently ruled out for the rest of the season.
